Pibella and my Wheelchair

Soon in English

Ich bin mit der Pibella Travel sehr zufrieden und bestelle deshalb gerne noch ein zweites Exemplar, damit ich sowohl zu Hause als auch auswärts versorgt bin. Ich bin nämlich Rollsstuhlfahrerin und deshalb immer davon abhängig, ob ich irgendwo eine entsprechende Toilette finde. Diese Pibella Urinierhilfe für Rollstuhlfahrerin macht für mich das Leben viel leichter. Mit freundlichem Gruss Siskaia Teiler

I didn’t know about it until yesterday

When I got to the category „Health“ in the AZ newspaper yesterday, the innovative photograph really stood out: I just had to carefully examine the report titled „A small tube for dripless peeing in the field of nursing care and on travels“.

Before I continued reading the paper, I had to visit your website first. Immediately after collecting the information I required, I submitted my order to you!

And only 24 hours later I am now able to try it out for the first time! Your invention is sensational!! It worked perfectly the very first time I tested it.

You just cannot imagine how happy I am about this invention and how happy my entire family will be when they won’t have to wait for hours on the ski slopes until I have taken off and put back on 5 layers of clothes in order to go to the toilet (I think we will be able to do at least 4 to 5 runs more per day!).

It’s a great shame that you hardly advertise such a great invention. For example, I didn’t know anything about it until yesterday.

And I also think it’s a shame that your website mainly addresses sick people and those in need of care. There are indeed a lot of young women with a bladder weakness (especially after giving birth) and who desperately (almost to the point of having tears in their eyes) look for toilets because they cannot go for a pee behind a tree in a discreet manner. When in public, a woman needs a great deal more courage to let her trousers down, even if she is behind a tree!

I wish you the best of success

Kind and grateful regards

Pibella definitely proves to be a wonderful alternative

In terms of nursing care, Pibella definitely proves to be a wonderful alternative. A friend of mine brought my attention to Pibella and asked me – I am a nursing care expert at a surgical ward – if we could also include Pibella in our range of products. After observing the usage procedure on the Internet, I was immediately interested and therefore ordered one.

After receiving the product, I tested it and immediately realised that I felt secure using Pibella, despite the fact that one or two trials in an undisturbed environment are necessary. The small, anatomical docking orifice is perfect, even though this may be hard to believe at first. Equipped with this new knowledge, I visited all the team meetings of our six wards and showed Pibella to the nurses. It is now available in all our wards.

A majority of the nurses wanted to experience Pibella themselves, which led them to order one for their own private use. Due to their own enthusiasm, they were able to overcome any inhibition whatsoever and thus present Pibella to the patients as well as explain its advantages to them! Patients who use Pibella are very happy and grateful because they are able to relieve themselves in an independent, intimate and comfortable manner. They are glad that they do not have to use the cold and uncomfortable bedpan. Apart from the patient satisfaction, the nurses are now able to protect their backs during work – notably in the case of obese patients who do not have to be lifted anymore. Furthermore, only one nurse is now needed to assist a patient to relieve him- or herself – something that is normally impossible when using a bedpan. It is also important to mention the fact that the risk of falling is also reduced. From my point of view, I am really glad that I didn’t have to do without Pibella during my mountain trekking trip in Thailand! It is clear to me that Pibella is an ingenious product and a major achievement for women!

Pibella offers an alternative to the bedpan

We know just how much the patients hate the bedpan, and that many actually drink a lot less or nothing at all in order not to have to use it. Pibella now offers an alternative to the bedpan.

Prevent falls

Maintain and improve the quality of life, give patients more independence and well-being, prevent falls – these goals can be achieved with Pibella which is why I recommend it with great conviction.

Introduction in healthcare institutions is practical

The introduction of Pibella in healthcare institutions is practical and desirable. It is also suitable for pregnant women and outdoor activities.

Also helpful for ill and handicapped people

Thank you very much for the documents and the quick delivery. I have already tested the Travel System and I am highly enthusiastic about this possibility. – This way, dirty toilets no longer poses a problem when I am out and about. I also see this system as a very helpful device for ill and handicapped people. I will definitely recommend Pibella during my courses and maybe even resell them. Thank you very much and kind regards

Once the initial concerns are overcome, happiness prevails

The Pibella female urination device is convenient for nursing care. Once the initial concerns are overcome, happiness prevails – gone is the feeling of regret that women have never had the opportunity to become acquainted with this system a lot earlier.
Especially in terms of nursing care, Pibella Comfort presents new opportunities: a urination system that makes the daily lives of both the patients and the nurses a lot easier – cleanly and without getting wet. I have tested the system myself and I am impressed. It takes some effort – at first I couldn’t let go and I was in doubt if it would work. – But it did! The patients at the hospital who were informed about Pibella couldn’t believe that the system hasn’t become a standard aid a long time ago!

I am absolutely convinced of this urination system because of the fact that its application is worthwhile – evident time saving, reduction of falls, cost savings and decisively more well-being for all patients. Further, the knowledge about Pibella is very important for nursing care at home, especially with regard to the ageing of the population – although this still remains a taboo subject.

I took Pibella Travel with me on my trip to Asia, and I travelled in a carefree manner.“

Pibella – and the wheel chair.

My short story:

I am confined to a wheelchair and I use Pibella Comfort whenever necessary. I often use Pibella at night when it is too exhausting to get up.

Because I often travel by train, I’m glad I don’t have to use the dreadful train toilets – instead, I am able do everything in my wheelchair. Whenever I go on a bicycle tour with my handbike, I look for a quiet spot outdoors due to the fact that my 2.10 m long vehicle does not fit inside any toilet whatsoever.
When I want to visit my friends or go to a restaurant or participate in advanced training courses, there are hardly ever any disabled toilet facilities.

Thanks to Pibella Comfort, this is no longer a problem at all. The only thing I have to find is a place where I can use Pibella Comfort without any disturbance.
Until now, travelling by air has been the biggest problem for wheelchair users. No airline installs disabled toilet facilities in its aircraft. Everything is narrow and tight. Whenever I wanted to visit my sister in Canada, I always had to wear diaper pants on the long flight. Now, with a blanket over my lap, I can also use Pibella Comforton an airplane.

With Pibella Comfort, I feel very relieved.
